I would like to plan a birthday party for my daughter a the park. Do I need to make reservation or do we just show up? I'd like to set up a photo booth for the kids. There will be about 30 people in attendance. Thanks Diane Burns 61 3384 6337

I think you have to contact the City of Kingston to get permission to set up the photo booth. I hope the party is lots of fun!
